Snow-clearing vehicle kills 16-year-old boy in Laval
A snow-clearing vehicle struck and killed a 16-year-old boy in Laval on Monday evening.
Erika Landry, a Laval police spokesperson, said the teen was walking through a parking lot near the intersection of Le Corbusier and Souvenir boulevards around 9 p.m.
A front-end loader clearing snow hit him and he died at the scene.
Police are investigating the incident and say it is too early to say what happened.
"For the moment, it is still an investigation," Landry said. "This information will come out either from meetings with witnesses, surveillance video, meeting the driver."
Since "both parties were working at the time of the incident," Landry said, the province's workplace safety agency, the CNESST, is also investigating the death.
The driver of the front-end loader was treated for shock.
